I know that there is the word cross out, with the meaning like to draw a line on something written that is relevant no more. And we cross out something in lists, etc.
But could we use just the verb cross to express the meaning when we draw a cross on smth (like to X), but it still relevant to us in its changed condition (being crossed).
I need to put it in such context
After erasing the sticker must be crossed with red lines.
We cannot crossed out the sticker because it still will be stick on smth. I have this feeling that it cannot be "out". So can we use just the verb cross for this? Or maybe I have the wrong feeling.
Please, help me to understand it.
